Although China has made remarkable economic progress in the past few years, those who trumpet its rise do not consider its massive internal contradictions involving social, political, demographic, and environmental problems.

China and the Revolution in Military Affairs. Authored by Dr. Bates Gill, LTC Lonnie Henley.
Dr. Bates Gill argued that there is more to participating in the RMA than securing or producing high-tech weaponry.
